457. When I wanted to marry God

When I wanted to marry God
For His occult power,
He insulted me mercilessly
For my stark stupidity.

When I wanted to marry God
For His spiritual power,
He scolded me privately
For my absurd greed.

When I wanted to marry God
To empty my ignorance-night,
He said in public:
“I am more than eager
To marry you.”
